Readers are often looking for more guidance on painting abstract art. Recently I found this tutorial that makes it easy and fun to explore abstract painting techniques: Abstract Painting Techniques.
Here's an intro to the program from Chanelle Leslie:
“Abstract painting can be a deceiving art form. It often seems relatively easy when you look at the finished product, but in reality, it’s not always so simple to create something perfectly imperfect. In fact, it can be downright intimidating.
This tutorial is designed for beginning artists trying to train their eyes and intermediate artists looking for new exercises to stretch their limits. It’s also a wonderful way for artists who are advanced in other genres to use their skills in a new way.
When you’ve been through all 11 exercises, it’s time to play with the final one: creating an alter ego. If it worked for David Bowie, there’s gotta be some merit to the alter ego, no? Learn how an alter ego can help push your artistic boundaries in the final section.
While none of these exercises in themselves will make you JMW Turner, they will offer you a structure by which you can improve your skills in ways you might not have discovered otherwise.”
Give it a try, and enjoy!
